Coyne confirms Jones and ‘would love to have Grosjean’ in IndyCar

In the round-up: IndyCar team owner Dale Coyne confirmed one of his drivers for the 2021 season and says he is keen to hire Romain Grosjean if he can.

Jones returns to IndyCar following his 2020 absence

Dale Coyne announced Ed Jones will return to his team this year to form one half of their two-car line-up. Jones made his debut in IndyCar with Coyne in 2017 before moving up to Ganassi, but was left without a drive after racing for Carpenter in 2019.

Coyne has one of the few remaining seats left in the series for this year, and former Haas F1 driver Grosjean, who is still recovering from the injuries he sustained in his huge Bahrain crash last year, has been tipped as a potential addition to their line-up.

“You all could make a list of a hundred drivers, we’ve talked to probably every one of them this winter,” said Coyne. “Employed, unemployed, America, Europe, every country. It’s been kind of amazing.

“Obviously Romain is a good driver. We’d love to have him. We’re working on a few other ones as well. Hopefully we get all that buttoned up and make an announcement next week and then get out to testing in February.”
